Fans of American Horror Story: Murder House are sure to love what’s in store for the end of American Horror Stories. The first two episodes of Ryan Murphy’s spinoff featured the infamous house from the very first season of the original series. Now, it seems episode 7 — the final episode of the first season of the spinoff — will also feature the house where everything began. And we’ll see a number of famous and familiar faces in the house as well.

[Spoiler alert: Possible spoilers ahead for the American Horror Stories Season 1 finale.]

The ‘American Horror Stories’ cast features familiar villains in the finale

We’re not sure exactly what to expect out of Murphy’s finale for American Horror Stories. But it seems we’ll get plenty of references to the original series. The finale episode is rumored to have the title, “Game Over,” and it takes place in the murder house from AHS Season 1 as well as the first two episodes of Stories. As for what the episode’s about, the tagline is allegedly, “A couple dares to spend the night in one of the most infamous haunted houses.”

Those who’ve followed AHS over the years know those who die in the murder house never leave. If the tagline for the final episode is any indication of what’s to come, we have a feeling the alleged couple who “dare” to stay in the home will meet plenty of familiar characters.

According to spoiler account AHSCrave, we’ll also see two familiar villains from other seasons in the finale. “Twisty the Clown and Bloody Face will make their comebacks in episode 7 of American Horror Stories!” the account shared. Twisty the Clown is from Freak Show, and Bloody Face is from Asylum.

Dylan McDermott, Noah Cyrus, and others from the first 2 episodes of ‘Stories’ return to the murder house

It seems we’ll see new and old faces in the season finale of American Horror Stories, too. In late July 2021, ahs.doublefeature posted a video of Dylan McDermott filming for Stories. McDermott played Ben Harmon in Murder House, and the ghosts and demons who haunted his home eventually killed him. It’s assumed he now resides in the house with the rest of his dead family.

Aside from McDermott, fans will also see a number of newcomers take the stage. Noah Cyrus, the sister of Miley Cyrus, was also captured on the finale set for Stories. It’s unclear who she’ll play in the finale.

Additionally, ahs.doublefeature found additional footage suggesting Sierra McCormick, Scarlett from the first episode of Stories, would return to the murder house for the finale. And the bullies from her high school she killed, including actor Paris Jackson, were also present.

Are ‘American Horror Stories’ episodes connected?

‘American Horror Stories’: New Riddle Teases Plots in Episodes 5, 6, and 7

Many familiar faces will allegedly take part in the spinoff’s finale. Could this mean all of the American Horror Stories episodes connect?

While this would make a cool concept for the new anthology series, this doesn’t seem to be the case. The first two episodes of Stories connect back to AHS Season 1. But every other episode seems totally detached from the murder house storyline. As for why the series brings murder house back around at the end, we’re not sure. It’s clear fans adore the murder house, but we’ll have to wait and see what they think of concluding the new spinoff with an idea the show’s already touched upon.

New episodes of American Horror Stories are available to stream on Thursdays only on Hulu.
